Meet Jon & Mallory N.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about us, and possibly consider our family for your little one. We wholeheartedly believe that your decision to explore adoption is incredibly honorable as well as deeply courageous. As adoptive parents, we promise to always be completely transparent with your child, answering any questions he or she may someday have about who they are, where they came from, and how great your love is. We would joyfully walk alongside you in this journey!

We are Jon and Mallory and are looking to add to our family of five. We met in 2004 through friends and were married on July 25, 2009. We live in Monroe, Ohio, a small yet growing town with lots of opportunities. We live in a neighborhood with lots of children playing outside regularly. There are three parks nestled within our neighborhood, one being just a short walk away.

Both of us graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Jon works full time at our church as the Elementary Children’s pastor. Prior to his career here, he taught third grade for five years. Mallory works for an online high school where she has a flexible schedule and is able to work from home, combining caring for her own children as well as helping her students.

Our family also includes our three children, Parker who is seven, Cooper who is five, and Adley who is almost two. Plus our boxer mix Bella! As busy and exciting as our family of five is, we feel it is not yet complete. We enjoy a full house and simply want to fill it a little bit more. Adoption is a beautiful thing that has always encircled us through the lives of friends and family and we are now ready to experience its’ beauty firsthand.

Springdale Nazarene Church is the place we call our second home. We have attended regularly for many years and have established fantastic friendships with many who are in the same stage of life as us. We often say we “do life together”. For us, church is a place where we all grow regularly in our relationship with God as well as with others who serve as our support system.

About Jon by Mallory – Jon is an easy going, up for anything kind of guy. He works hard and always has the interests of others in mind. He is never too busy to stop what he’s doing and play “monster” as the kids run away screaming and laughing. Camping and hiking are two of his favorite pastimes, along with OSU football. His passion for life and most importantly his ongoing pursuit to follow Jesus is amazing.

About Mallory by Jon – Mallory is an organizer and a planner. She is very detailed and helps run our family and balances our ever changing schedules. When she is not hanging out with the family, she loves to sit down and read a good book. She is an incredible example of a woman of faith, integrity and character to both family and friends.
